    Left of the island is a tamer route. You are really the best outfitter in Valentine! Johnsgard had canoed the Niobrara before it became the rage. Although officially decommissioned, the dam remains standing. We can also be found on Facebook and Twitter. Even as that issue was resolved by federal legislation inthere came equally electric questions over how to manage the newly designated Wild and Scenic River, and for whom, and how to lay a federal boundary along its central corridor.

    Downstream, the river is flanked by limestone, sandstone, and chalk cliffs, with countless seeps contributing groundwater to the stream. Just maybe, this time, Nebraskans will not dry up another river. The National Park Service manages the remaining 67 miles, acting as a facilitator for resource protection by landowners and river users, providing law enforcement and visitor education services, and coordinating resource management activities. From Cornell Bridge, it takes two hours to pass under the Berry Bridge.

    Before any people inhabited the Niobrara River Valley, the area was mainly home to bison because of the abundance of fresh water. Adulthood and geographical hurdles have proven worthy adversaries for the amount of face time we get as a collective group. If we arrive early enough in the season like we did on this most recent tripour only competition on the unhurried tributary is the local mule deer and waterfowl. Only few parts of the park are can be accessed by vehicles. Thank you to all our readers, contributors, and supporters - the quality of Prairie Fire was a reflection of how many people it touched touches. Doug prefers to negotiate the wintertime river from a kayak, working his way downstream through narrow channels of open water in the otherwise ice-covered river.

Niobrara, Niobrara National Scenic River book

In the winter, ice forms on one particular segment of the can-yon through which the group floats as rivulets of water trickle down the sandstone sides. For more information on Graham Outfitters, visit their website at grahamoutfitters.

Looking for some adventure? A mile more brings you to Fritz's Island. They include American elm, basswood, cottonwood, green ash, bur oak, hackberry and box elder. Guided walks and programs that tell stories about the park are offered by rangers at some of these areas too.

These guys are great and will provide you with great service. Kids activities are also hosted at the center. On this Niobrara joyride, the Grahams have two foot white-water rafts that are much more stable than canoes or kayaks.

I also hope that, if you love the outdoors, you get the chance to visit the Niobrara someday. Take a four person stock tank to get out on the river and enjoy its beautiful surroundings. Next up will be Franklin's Rapids, which tends to develop a large hole at the center of the river.

We look forward to this trip and to seeing you every year! Johnsgard notes at the onset that his abiding interest in the Niobrara is actually many decades old but that he long deferred his writing interest to a friend, Fred Thomas, an outdoors columnist for the Omaha World-Herald, who was writing his own book on the Niobrara but left the task unfinished at his death in By early afternoon, things were looking much better, so we met him at the river, had a wonderful afternoon kayaking, and returned safe and sound.

This means tubing is great for adults and children alike. The water is, in the summer at least, perfectly cool and not very deep. Many come to spend days taking advantage of the great fishing and hunting the area provides.

A one-mile hike leads to foot tall Smith Falls.

Book Review

Protected from several dam proposals, this stretch of river where we make our pilgrimage was declared a National Scenic River by the National Park Service in May ofputting it in rare company.

For far too long, I thought Nebraska was a place where people would only exit Interstate 80 if their gas light came on.

Three types of prairie are found in the river valley, displaying a botanical transition between among the eastern tallgrass prairie, the Sandhills mixed-grass prairie, and Northern Mixed-grass prairie.

The night before we were to get on the river, a terrible storm hit Valentine dumping inches of rain. California and South Carolina, oceans.NPS Photo.
